ABOUT Gershwin Competition
George Gershwin International Music Competition aims to discover talent, reward brilliance, and celebrate musical artistry.
The Competition is named after George Gershwin, whose music had long been a part of the American consciousness. Truly a pioneer in his field, George Gershwin drew inspiration from European classical music, American popular music, and jazz to form a unique style that would come to define American music.
The 5th Jubilee Edition of the Gershwin International Music Competition presents over 400 applicants from 45 countries and 27 US States. Several of the candidates will be admitted to the competition Semifinal Round, which takes place in New York City in June 2022.
Along with monetary awards, finalists of the Gershwin International Music Competition 2022 will receive concerts in the United States and Europe, recordings on acclaimed music labels, appearances with orchestras, alongside marketing/media promotion.
